Happy Birthday

Hubby's granddaughter is about to turn 20--hard to believe! Used the PTI MIM video & the current ColorQ challenge for my inspiration. I used VersaMagic inks: Turquoise Gem, Spring Pansy, Key Lime & Persimmon.  I die cut the PTI hexagon coverplate & used it as a guide to stamp the outline hexagon.  Then I debossed the stamped piece with the coverplate & cut it apart, as you see.  
It was too plain, so added the little image from Quilled Elegance--made all the difference. 
I used a glue pen to add prisma glitter.  The sentiment is from PTI Heart to Heart #2--such a fun font.
Thought you might enjoy seeing the bouquet of roses I brought in the house & a picture from our camping trip. Thanks so much for taking time to check my blog.
